If you’re planning a December wedding, now is the time to go visit your favorite reception locations to see how beautiful they look at Christmas time. Holiday weddings don’t require a lot of decorating on your end since the facilities have already decked themselves out in the season finest: evergreen garlands, gorgeous wreaths, poinsettias in red, white, and pink, amaryllis, and pine trees lit up in every shape, style, and size. And the Shadowbrook (732-747-0200; shadowbrook.com) is no exception. This Georgian mansion in Shrewsbury has truly outdone itself by creating such a glorious winter wonderland. Be sure to click on the image below to see all of the pictures. There’s truly not much more you need to add in the way of décor. This added bonus is what many couples aren’t aware of when planning a December wedding. It truly will save you thousands on your florist bill. If there’s a specific decoration that you just love and can’t live without, I suggest taking a picture so that you can remind your event planner next year to be sure that that special touch is front and center. They’ll be more than willing to work with you and make sure Christmas is re-created how you envisioned it. And if you’re holding your wedding these next few weeks, please send me pictures of how you decorated your room in the holiday spirit. Happy Holidays!
